What Is Discrimination?
Discrimination is defined as the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of ethnicity, age, sex, or disability.Employers who are treating workers unlawfully often get away with it because many employees are unfamiliar with what discrimination looks like in a place of work and cannot determine whether or not it is actually happening to them. When you’re receiving improper treatment from an employer that other employees are not receiving, you are being discriminated against. Though no two situations are the same for every employee, discrimination often looks like:
- Making inappropriate remarks in regard to your sexual orientation, ethnicity or race.
- Extreme changes in performance reviews/observations/ratings due to your gender or political beliefs
- Exclusion from certain work tasks, meetings or benefits due to your disability or parenting status
- Unequal pay compared to another class of employee, such as one of a different gender
- And other instances of unfair treatment based on something other than your work performance
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) protects you from harassment, denial of a workplace change, improper questions about personal/genetic information, and retaliation. The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and The Fair Employment and Housing Act also protect you at the state and federal level under the following characteristics:
- Race, color
- Ancestry, national origin
- Religion, creed
- Age (40 and over)
- Disability, mental and physical
- Sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical conditions)
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity, gender expression
- Medical condition
- Genetic information
- Marital status
- Military or veteran status
- Equal pay
- And more!
